Anyone who has had ad issues between October 04, 2019 18:56:54 and now - we believe that issues taking place during that time are not Flight Rising's advertising networks. We have shut off ads and defaulted to showing a single banner ad for hiveworks and are not showing real advertising from any ad network, and have been since the 4th while we try and narrow where there pop-up issue is coming from.

So if it's still happening, I would strongly recommend checking your system for malware or extensions that insert ads.

Using chrome. Clicked on one of my FR tabs, which usually refreshes it after I haven't been on it for a while. Got immediately redirected to a new site and a new tab was opened with what I was viewing on FR before(one of my dragons).

I'm not sure what system a chromebook uses. It's provided by my school and restricted so it shouldn't have malware or anything like that? The tab that I refreshed was opened a few days ago before you stopped ads again.

Using chrome on android and got suspicious redirection when i pressed a gathering button. Closed it up immediately, only got glimpse of where it led, something like "t.click.redirect.xxx...".
There have been random pop ups at various web sites, even where were no ads banners. All of them led to "t.mail.ru.redir.xxx..." redirection, but mostly at FR.
Checked my phone for malware, nothing found.
Unfortunately there is no way to reinstall whole chrome on android...

Hello everyone! We are turning ads back on for the night so that the Hiveworks team can observe the site and ads live overnight to see if we can nip these problem ads in the bud. Any reports of problems you encounter can be very helpful to us. Please follow the instructions on the first page of this thread for how to inspect an ad and send the best report possible!

Towards the reports from Oct 4th to the time of this post those appear to be browser side issues as ads were offline from network connections for that period, we'd advise you run a malware scan.

[quote name="StorageDen" date="2019-10-04 09:55:48" ] Occasionally when I'm out exploring flight rising out of boredom. I come across this wish ad. Im pretty positive this ad is not flight rising friendly as showing a keyboard shirt with someones hands typing on the chest area. While it is comical it makes you kind of uncomfortable after a while. Same with the shot of someones rear end. Besides sometimes I'll let my little cousins play on my flight rising when they come over and Im doing work, (mostly letting them make dragons in the scry) and it makes me uncomfortable when this ad is shown to them. They may not understand it but I don't really feel okay with it being shown. Sorry for this long paragraph, thank you for taking time to read this flight rising team. Your game is amazing!

Things are getting bad. Whenever I am on a flight rising page, an ad pops up IN MY COMPUTER WINDOWS (not in chrome) and tells me things like "Win free money!' and "Your computer has been infected!" and things like that. Here is a screenshot of what that looks like: [img]https://i.imgur.com/Swr5yrA.png[/img] I am on Google Chrome. I use Windows 10. This is an HP computer and not a Chromebook. The ads can very easily give me a virus because there is nowhere in my task manager to close them. I have to click on them. Please, please, please fix this.

@Dragonclaw101 if it's showing up in your computer notifs, you probably already have a virus. (Also sorry for the random friend request, didn't mean to click that)

(Also sorry for the random friend request, didn't mean to click that) [/quote] Exactly why I am doing a scan on my computer. It's been annoying because I am very diligent with my online safety and I don't click random links on the internet. Or any links I specifically am not searching for. Thanks for the advice though!

Chrome (77.0.3865.92) Android (9; SM-N960F Build/PPR1.180610.011) Had these ads recently appear, themes and thumbs make me suspect it could lead to a hentai site, that or it's clickbait. I haven't gone to the adsite to see if so myself but might be worth investigating. I was unable to get the source of the ad as it refreshed, will try if I see it again. [img]https://i.imgur.com/p5Gjue4.png[/img] I'll also note that I'm browsing on recently cleared history and I don't browse [i]risqué[/i] sites so if it's a random suggested one don't judge me it's the algorithm I swear
